Four tips for aspiring media innovators | IJNet

Four tips for aspiring media innovators | IJNet | Journalism: the citizen side | Scoop.it
Traditionally, journalists have lived for the scoop: get the story first, and let your competitors read about it on tomorrow’s front page.

But to be successful at media innovation, journalists and media companies need to focus less on competition and more on collaboration, says media strategist Justin Arenstein.

Digital Publishing: Generation Right Now

Digital Publishing: Generation Right Now | Journalism: the citizen side | Scoop.it
I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but millennials are everywhere. We hear a lot these days about the 80 million or so people born after 1980 and before 2000, but America’s largest generation are often dismissed in newsrooms as being disengaged and “newsless.”

Unfortunately, add the dismissal of millennial readers to the list of things newspapers have gotten wrong in the past 20 years. Since this generation is expected to spend $200 billion annually by 2017 in the U.S. alone, it could be a costly mistake for newspapers still struggling to adapt to the times.

The good news is a large number of millennial readers may still be up for grabs, at least according to a study released last month by the Media Insight Project.

Time channels radio to boost mobile time spent - Digiday | Journalism: the citizen side | Scoop.it
Digital media is going back to the future by channeling the early days of radio by giving digital visitors the option of having the news read to them.

Case in point is Time magazine. It’s among a handful of publishers — including The Economist, Forbes and Quartz — that have been creating audio versions of their publications. Basically, a professional voice actor reads stories or, in the cast of The Economist, the entire edition, which is a seven-hour experience.)

Ad Blocking Poses a Growing Challenge to Media Companies

Ad Blocking Poses a Growing Challenge to Media Companies | Journalism: the citizen side | Scoop.it
Patrick Curry, 22, sees no ads when he visits websites like the New York Times, even though other visitors see plenty of them–seven at nytimes.com on a recent day, for instance.

That’s because Curry has used free software called Adblock Plus to remove ads from the websites he visits since a friend told him about it more than a year ago. Now he seems blissfully unaware of most online ads–and says he prefers the Internet that way.

Clarifying Journalism’s Quantitative Turn

Clarifying Journalism’s Quantitative Turn | Journalism: the citizen side | Scoop.it
As quantitative forms have become more prevalent in professional journalism, it has become increasingly important to distinguish between them and examine their roles in contemporary journalistic practice. This study defines and compares three quantitative forms of journalism—computer-assisted reporting, data journalism, and computational journalism—examining the points of overlap and divergence among their journalistic values and practices. After setting the three forms against the cultural backdrop of the convergence between the open-source movement and professional journalistic norms, the study introduces a four-part typology to evaluate their epistemological and professional dimensions. In it, the three forms are classified according to their orientation toward professional expertise or networked participation, transparency or opacity, big data or targeted sampling, and a vision of an active or passive public. These three quantitative journalistic forms are ultimately characterized as related but distinct approaches to integrating the values of open-source culture and social science with those of professional journalism, each with its own flaws but also its own distinct contribution to democratically robust journalistic practice.

Qualidade do ciberjornalismo profissional e amador: estudo comparativo

"A entrada da “antiga audiência” (Gillmor, 2005; Rosen, 2006) no processo jornalístico tem levantado inúmeras questões, designadamente quanto à qualidade e credibilidade dos conteúdos produzidos, editados/alterados, selecionados/”curados”, valorizados edifundidos/partilhados por pessoas sem preparação jornalística e desconhecedoras oudesrespeitadoras das normas deontológicas da profissão.O objetivo desta investigação foi medir e comparar os níveis de qualidade de umaamostra de notícias produzidas e difundidas por jornalistas profissionais e de notícias produzidas e difundidas pela “antiga audiência” (cidadãos que não exercem o jornalismo como profissão).

Para tal, foi utilizada a inovadora proposta metodológica dos “5 C’s e 1 A” (compreensibilidade, contexto, causalidade, comparabilidade, abrangência e precisão)de Anderson (2014: 21-23) e a respetiva análise de conteúdo codificada por cores. A amostra foram nove notícias de diferentes origens (produção profissional e amadora)selecionadas e votadas pelos utilizadores do agregador Digg.Concluímos que o ciberjornalismo profissional, sem surpresa, regista melhores níveis dequalidade e que, ao contrário do que tem sido propagado como efeito da instantaneidadee da informação de 140 caracteres, a “antiga audiência” parece preferir notícias longas,de jornalismo investigativo (“slow journalism”).

A utilização das Redes Sociais pelos jornalistas portugueses: novos desafios éticos e deontológicos para a profissão

A utilização das Redes Sociais pelos jornalistas portugueses: novos desafios éticos e deontológicos para a profissão | Journalism: the citizen side | Scoop.it
A investigação aqui apresentada visa possibilitar uma clarificação das principais preocupações e desafios em torno das questões éticas do jornalismo do século XXI e proporcionar uma reflexão sobre a já longínqua tendência apontada por Colombo (1998), quando ainda no século passado teorizava sobre o futuro do jornalismo, concluindo que mais do que nunca, os jornalistas necessitariam de um elevado sentido moral, aliado a uma astúcia técnica cada vez mais apurada. Face à emergência do papel de um cidadão-repórter cada vez mais ativo no panorama das redes sociais, jornalistas e grupos de media parecem fazer da bandeira da deontologia o grande trunfo na distinção entre a informação amadora, massivamente veiculada online, e o trabalho profissional das redações. Uma distinção na qual poderá estar sustentado o futuro do jornalismo profissional.

Listicles, aggregation, and content gone viral: How 1800s newspapers prefigured today’s Internet

Listicles, aggregation, and content gone viral: How 1800s newspapers prefigured today’s Internet | Journalism: the citizen side | Scoop.it
“Many 19th-century newspapers are comprised primarily of content from other newspapers,” he said. “They were more aggregators than producers of original content. And often they were created by very small staffs, and scholars such as Ellen Gruber Garvey have shown that this aggregation is what allowed newspapers to spread as rapidly as they did in the 19th century, because you didn’t have to produce the whole thing.”

Social media, mobile devices and online news: 2015 data and charts that speak to digital trends

Social media, mobile devices and online news: 2015 data and charts that speak to digital trends | Journalism: the citizen side | Scoop.it
The announcement in May 2015 that nine news organizations, including the New York Times, NBC News, the BBC and BuzzFeed, would begin serving up some of their content natively to Facebook’s platform has been the subject of intense scrutiny in the media and publishing world.

Is this a sign of surrender, as media companies wave the white flag before increasingly dominant technology companies? Or is it just a trial balloon, and not the leading edge of a trend that will ultimately lead to the evaporation of news websites themselves?

All Together Now: News Partnerships Increase in Digital Age

All Together Now: News Partnerships Increase in Digital Age | Journalism: the citizen side | Scoop.it
At any gathering of newspaper veterans of a certain age – and many of them are at funerals nowadays – you’ll hear simultaneous laments for the “golden age” of newspapers and self-congratulations for having been lucky enough to have been a part of it.

But maybe we should be looking forward instead.

In the nine years since I took a buyout from the Washington Post, I’ve seen a lot of inspiring journalism and a promising new bent toward more collaboration in telling great stories in new ways.

El diario ecuatoriano ‘La Hora’ se rebela ante el control del Gobierno

El diario ecuatoriano ‘La Hora’ se rebela ante el control del Gobierno | Journalism: the citizen side | Scoop.it
Un día después de haberse declarado en resistencia al decidir no pagar la multa de 3.540 dólares impuesta por el órgano de control mediático de Ecuador por no difundir la rendición de cuentas del alcalde de Loja (sur del país), la redacción del Diario La Hora hace una pausa y sus periodistas comparten en la mesa de reuniones lo que han escuchado en la calle. “Dicen que el Gobierno quiere quebrarnos…nos felicitan por nuestra valentía…hay mucho apoyo”. El editor general, Luis Vivanco, explica la rebeldía: “Si no nos declarábamos en resistencia, habríamos aceptado que el poder político nos imponga los contenidos y eso sería nefasto para todos los que hacemos periodismo”. 
Manuel Pinto's insight:

Luis Eduardo Vivanco, editor general del periódico ecuatoriano La Hora:

"(...) en Ecuador el poder del Estado (...) sanciona a los medios por lo que no publican. (...) Con esta sanción al Diario La Hora (...) el Gobierno y sus afines no solo han logrado regar el miedo en las salas de redacción, provocando autocensuras, sino que ahora el poder político se convierte en el gran editor de los medios, definiendo qué se debe publicar."

Journalism In An Era Of Big Data

This special issue examines the changing nature of journalism amid data abundance, computational exploration, and algorithmic emphasis—developments with wide meaning in technology and society at large, and with growing significance for the media industry and for journalism as practice and profession. These data-centric phenomena, by some accounts, are poised to greatly influence, if not transform over time, some of the most fundamental aspects of news and its production and distribution by humans and machines. While such expectations may be overblown, the trend lines are nevertheless clear: large-scale datasets and their collection, analysis, and interpretation are becoming increasingly salient for making sense of and deriving value from digital information, writ large. What such changes actually mean for news, democracy, and public life, however, is far from certain. As such, this calls for scholarly scrutiny, as well as a dose of critique to temper much celebration about the promise of reinventing news through the potential of “big data.”

Media Companies: Don’t Let Your Traffic Run Out the Side Door

Media Companies: Don’t Let Your Traffic Run Out the Side Door | Journalism: the citizen side | Scoop.it

"With the launch of Facebook’s Instant Articles, media companies have two choices: (a) integrate deeply with Facebook — fast load times! better experience! (b) skip this opportunity and risk falling further behind in the traffic race driven from Facebook. Given that Facebook has become such a huge traffic driver to so many media sites, in reality, most have no choice to make. Yet while Facebook and, of course, Google drive significant traffic volume, that traffic is not always the best. It is often one page only, and comes with very short sessions. Especially on mobile. It doesn’t have to be this way."

The Last Five Years Have Been Disastrous for Greek Journalism

The Last Five Years Have Been Disastrous for Greek Journalism | Journalism: the citizen side | Scoop.it
Today, Greece is the European Union member state where journalism and the media face their most acute crisis. This study identifies the urgent problems facing media policy in Greece and how they affect independent journalism.

Since the 1980s and ’90s, deregulation has increased the viewing choices for audiences in Greece. At the same time, the legal and regulatory framework has helped concentrate ownership of press, television, and radio outlets. Private channels operate with temporary licenses and independent regulatory authorities function superficially and ambivalently. As a result, the market has been dominated by a handful of powerful newspaper interests, which have expanded into audiovisual and online media. Recent laws have further liberalized media ownership and cross-ownership.

Media Policy and Independent Journalism in Greece, based partly on in-depth interviews with key actors, explores these issues and more in this six-chapter report.

New Tow Center study: the role of metrics in journalism

A new report, “The Traffic Factories”, launched on May 7th by the Tow Center for Digital Journalism looks at how analytics affect newsroom culture and the journalists’ daily work. Research fellow Caitlin Petre conducted an ethnographic study examining three case studies: the analytics company Chartbeat, Gawker Media, where metrics are highly available to the editorial staff, and the New York Times, where the use of metrics is more marginal. She found that metrics “exert a powerful influence over journalists’ emotions and morale”, inspiring a range of strong feelings, which are too often overlooked. Newsroom managers should consider the potential effects of traffic data not only on editorial content but also on editorial workers, the study says.
